If you’ve been the victim of a health insurer data breach, it’s important to know your rights; especially when you consider the nature of the information that can be exposed.
Although we have our wonderful public NHS here in the UK, private health insurance is in use by many people. It can often form as part of work perks, or for those with particular conditions they need to manage more effectively.
Health insurers, like all organisations, have an important duty to look after the data that they process and store. However, given that such companies will often use the most personal and sensitive data you can think of, the duty to protect it is even more prevalent.
Claims for compensation that arise from a health insurer data breach can be substantial. We often say that data breach compensation amounts can be higher when it comes to medical data, as that’s data that we typically see as the most personal and sensitive in nature.
However, private health insurers will also have financial data as well as medical data and the usual personal information. And that’s why a breach of this nature can have such a substantial impact on victims.
When you make a claim for data breach compensation, you can claim for the distress and suffering caused by the loss of control of your personal and sensitive information. You can also claim for any financial losses, which could be money that’s lost from fraud.
With these kinds of cases, we could easily be looking at substantial damages for the loss of control of medical data, and the recovery of losses form fraud. This can especially be the case if the data breach arises from a cybersecurity incident.
If you’re the victim of a health insurer data breach, you could be entitled to make a claim for compensation.
When it comes to leaks and the misuse of personal information, GDPR can allow you the right to claim damages for any distress and loss caused.
Further, if the organisation has failed to take appropriate steps to safeguard your data from theft or loss, you may also have a legal case.
We can offer No Win, No Fee representation for victims who have suffered distress and / or financial loses that arise from a health insurer data breach.
